Know What You Want From Your Safari And Beach Holiday

Before you think you’ll need to book a few different tours or packages in order to gain access to the inland parks and the coastal beaches, you should know that some of the finest touring firms make these combined opportunities available already. AfricaSafari.co.uk, as an example, offers up tours that bring visitors to the gorgeous beaches of Mombasa and then inland to some of the best parklands and safari spots. This same firm also makes it possible to visit the beaches of Zanzibar or luxurious Dubai too. The key to choosing the ideal package is to know how much time you want to spend at the beaches and how much time you would prefer to be out in the savannah or national parks, taking in the scenery and viewing the wildlife.

Good To Know About Safari And Beach Holidays In Africa

If you are ready to plan combined Africa safari and beach holidays, you should familiarize yourself with the different locations that the finer tours visit. This ensures you will see the sights and animals on your wish list, but that you also get ample time at other locations. For instance, would you rather travel around Kenya (including the city of Nairobi) for just a few days and then head to the beaches for a bit longer? Maybe it is the reverse? To be sure you are going to enjoy the very most out of Africa safari and beach holidays be sure that your tour includes time at Amboseli National Park, Masai Mara, and a visit to the Great Rift Valley (a premium place to enjoy a boat trip on Lake Naivasha).

Remember, too, that your beach stay should be in a location known for quality accommodations as well as prime beachfront. This is why Mombasa is usually among the top choices for those taking Africa safari and beach holidays. As a city within Kenya’s borders, it is a short flight from Nairobi and makes an ideal choice. As stated, though, Tanzania is earning plenty of praise for its excellent beaches and resorts, and your tour may include additional trips that enhance your experience of this lovely destination too. For instance, Zanzibar has rainforests and local villages that are ideal spots for unforgettable holiday experiences. Don’t limit your visit to Kenya to just the beaches or just the inland safaris. You really can have the best of both worlds in this exotic destination, just be sure you book with a quality provider offering you opportunities to truly experience Africa at its best.
